What are the truths and lies we tell ourselves and others is the basis for this wonderfully written novel. The various relationships reflected between family, friends, lovers are shown in stark reality despite the lies the characters tell to hide the truth. Cameron writes his prose in a way that appears simple and unvarnished yet, beneath it is complexity and darkness.
This is not a happy story. It is filled psychological tension that ripples the surface of the characters interaction.

a story about characters escaping for (tada) the weekend to upstate new york, and the realization that it might not be that easy.
